London Outreach

Parliament makes law, debates the issues of the day, and checks and challenges the work of Government. Parliament affects everyone you know and everything you care about, so why not find out more?  

Drop-in Sessions in Westminster:

You can attend one of our drop-in sessions to find out more about how your Parliament works. The sessions are open to anyone who wants to learn more about the House of Commons and the House of Lords. All you have to do is book a place.

Drop-in sessions are free, but spaces are limited so we ask that all places are booked in advance.

 The sessions can cover:

  • the role of an MP
  • the difference between Parliament and Government
  • how a bill becomes law
  • how you can get involved with the work of Parliament, and
  • we will try to answer any questions you may have about Parliament.
